Actual books based on videogames are hit and miss. Faux book covers based on videogames, however, rarely disappoint. Although she isn't the first artist to blend modern game concepts with dusty old literary jackets, UK artist A.J. Hateley's growing portfolio deserves a quick scan nonetheless – especially if this is your first viewing. See if you can guess which games she's drawn on for inspiration this time.
A.J. Hateley is a seasoned illustrator and student, and this latest project is one's she's been adding to throughout the year. Many of the viewer comments suggest these would make excellent iPad or Kindle covers. And while we whole-heartedily agree, we'd also buy them in poster, coaster, t-shirt, blanket, commemorative plate and knitted sweater form as well.
